6.has an optical viewfinder
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.

3.has AF tracking
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.

4.maximum light sensitivity

25600 ISO

25600 ISO

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

2.Has phase detection autofocus for videos
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

A phase detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.

3.Has timelapse function
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.

4.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM

5.has a 24p cinema mode
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM

An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.

Features

1.Has WiFi
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM

The device can connect to WiFi.

2.has an external memory slot
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) so that you can either extend the internal storage with affordable memory modules or you can retrieve data, such as photographs, easily from a memory card.

3.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

802.11n is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors - a, b and g.

4.can be controlled remotely
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.

5.Has dual card slots
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

It has two memory card slots, allowing you to store more photos without switching cards. This is particularly useful on long shoots when you need more space.

6.has an accelerometer
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes between vertical and horizontal positions.

Miscellaneous

1.maximum angle of view

74° (Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM)

61° (Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm F/3.5-4.5G ED VR)

At the shorter end of the lens you get the widest angle of view. This allows you to fit more of the scene into the photograph (based on APS-C format).

Best

84°

2.minimum focus distance

0.25m (Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM)

0.38m (Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm F/3.5-4.5G ED VR)

This is the closest distance that the lens can focus. A shorter minimum focus distance allows you to get closer to your subject, and is particularly important when doing macro photography.

Best

0.11m

3.Has focus motor
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.

4.aperture blades

7 (Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM)

7 (Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm F/3.5-4.5G ED VR)

The aperture controls how much light gets through to the camera’s sensor. More blades is often an indicator of a better quality lens. It also allows you to achieve much nicer looking bokeh when blurring out your background, whereas a lens with less blades will often produce harsher, more polygonal bokeh.

5.Has rounded aperture blades
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

Similar to the number of aperture blades, rounded blades affect the way the light gets through to the sensor. Rounded blades, often only found on more expensive lenses, improve the appearance of the out-of-focus areas. This allows you to attain better, softer looking bokeh in your photos.

6.Front element doesn't rotate
Canon EOS Rebel T6i + Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Nikon D600 + AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm VR

The front element doesn’t rotate. This is important if you use filters, as some such as polarising or gradient filters have to be orientated a certain way.
